Biographies

Bennett James Bennett came to NSW on the Woodbridge in 1842. In 1846, he was working for John O'Ryan at Cassilis when he applied for his 5 children to come to NSW. The application was 46/229 ** Which was wrapped inside 47/317**. The children were in the care of Rev Thomas Blake at Roscrea, and their names were William(15), Oliver(13), John(11), James(9) and Mary(7), all of whom were said to have been baptised at Camlin. Bennett I believe tis entry from your almost emigrant list: BURKE , Daniel 38 Archer's Town,Thurles Pat Burke Jan '59 Ref: Henry Langley,Archer's Town BURKE , Mary 36 Archer's Town Pat Burke Jan '59 Wife of Daniel + 6 named children matches Daniel and Mary BOURKE on board the "Abyssinian" 1859. They may be part of my line. I'm still unsure. I am descended from Thomas Bourke/Burke who was married in 1867 in Aus. I know he had a brother Richard who's parents are listed as Patrick and Mary (on his death record) and who was aged 80 in 1919. Apart from that the family stories say they were from Tipperary. I am narrowing them down but according to your list the possibilities appear to include Thomas Bourke 1855 (aged 25) per "Lord Hungerford", Thomas Burke 1856 (age 14) per "Ben Nevis". If he is the latter then Patrick (his father on board) appears to be brother to Daniel 1859 per "Abyssinian" (Patrick paid the passage for Daniel). I would like to be put down as a researcher for Daniel, Patrick and the two mentioned Thomas'. Lisa Apfel E-mail Address(es): apfel@dodo.com.au Bowen/Bohen John BOHE(E)N/BOWEN bc 1790 Kilmoyer Tipperary In March 1821 John was convicted at the Tipperary Court, for Highway Robbery . He was sentenced on 13 June 1821 to Life in Australia and on the 16 June 1821 sailed aboard the 'John Barry (2)' which arrived in Sydney on 7 November 1821. (NSW Archive Office – Reel 2423) In 1823 he was assigned to Mr. G.M. Woodhouse, a farmer at Appin. As John had served several years with good conduct an application for his family to be sent to Australia under the Government Sponsored Family Reunion was made on 28 Nov 1823. (Mitchell Library NSW - Govenor Brisbane Dispatches No. 17 Reel CY902) He had married Mary LANDERS (bc 1793 Duallagh? Tipp) on 26 Nov 1811 at Newtown Tipperary and their children were: 1) William BOHEN bc 1813 Kilmoyer Tipp maried Tipperary Ireland to Ellen LONERGAN (the children of William & Ellen would arrived Michael in 1857 aboard the 'Alfred', Cornelius in 1856 aboard the 'Alfred', Mary unknown year and Ellen in 1862 aboard the 'Lady Milton' 2) Edward BOHEN bc 1816 Kilmoyer Tipp married East Maitland NSW to Phildelphia STACE 3) Mary BOHEN bc 1819 Kilmoyer Tipp married 1834 Newcastle NSW John BOHAN/BOWEN (no relation) Mary (nee LANDERS) BOHEN with only Edward and Mary jnr arrived on 26/4/1826 aboard the 'Thames' and immediately applied to have her husband assigned to her (NSW Archive Office - Colonial Secretary Papers Petition No.29/3437). The family were residing in Pitt Street, Sydney during the 1828 Census. John and Mary would have three more daughters while living in Sydney, Margaret b/d 1827, Jeanna b/d1828 and Johannah b April 1828 who later married William RENNIX The family moved to the Raymond Terrace area about 1830 and assumed the surname of BOWEN by the 1841 Census. Mary (nee LANDERS) BOWEN died on 8 September 1850 at Raymond Terrace, as women before her time, a female Irishwomen, wife of a former convict, she left a will (NSW Probate Series 1 No. 3749) leaving an estate worth 500 pounds to her husband John. He died on 23 January 1858 at Raymond Terrace. Both are buried in the Pioneer cemetery at Raymond Terrace.

The earliest recordings I have of John is around 1868 in Castlemaine and Michael was married there in 1873 to Teresa Eckhardt. I have also discovered that he had 3 sisters Sarah, Mary and Margaret who came to Victoria at some time and settled in Williamstown. Daniel arrived in 1901 and died in 1903. He was 45 years at the time of his death. Michael is buried in Bendigo cemetery and was interred there in November 1919.

Supplied by : Sharon McCulloch richshaz@fuzion.com.au xxxxxxxxxxxx ENGLISH John English and Charlotte Eliza Galpin John English was born on the 9th of March 1837 in Tipperary, Ireland. He arrived in Australia on the Palmyra in 1859 aged twenty-two. John Brown of Yass paid for his passage. I think he was the same John Brown who came as a convict on the ship Surrey in 1838 and was the husband of Honora (nee English). In 1849 Brown had applied to have his wife follow him from Thomastown, Golden, Cashel but as the record says, ‘ Wife too poor-declines to go’. I think Honora Brown (nee English) was the sister of Simon English, John’s father. John’s mother was also Honora. In 1856 Honora Brown aged 43 of Thomastown, the wife of John Brown of Yass arrived on the ship Commodore Perry with her daughter Johanna aged 21 and her son John aged 20. Her parents were John and Anne who by this time were both dead. On the shipping list John English gave his home address in Ireland as Golden IDJ. On the same ship were Mary English aged thirty-six and Bridget English aged thirty-five, also of Golden and also paid for by John Brown of Yass. In the Yass Courier on the 5th of February 1897 there is a death notice, 'English, Mary. Native of Tipperary Ireland died at Yass on 2.2.1897 aged 87 years. Came to the colony in 1859, Aunt of John English of Belowrie near Yass, Mrs James Dwyer of Spring Creek, Yass River, John Brown (I presume this is John Brown senior and Honora Brown’s son), Yass and Mr W English of Bango.' This is the aunt Mary who came with John to Yass and Bridget was her sister. When young John English was going to school in Yass in 1879 I surmise that this is the Mary he was staying with. In 1866 William English aged fifteen and Edmund English aged eighteen of Thomastown, Golden, Cashel arrived in Sydney on the ship Racehorse, paid for by John English of Yass. They gave as their parents Simon and Honora English and their hometown as Thomastown, Golden, Cashel. Thomastown is a townland that is not on most maps but is on the main road between Golden and Kilfeakle, now the N74. The N74 goes from Tipperary town northeast to Cashel then north to Thurles. A townland is a small area of a few farms. It was the smallest administrative area but usually served as a postal address, in this case John English, Thomastown via Golden via Cashel, County Tipperary. Thomastown is in the parish of Golden, which is in the diocese of Cashel and Emly. There was a Blessed Sacrament church built in Golden in 1804. I have not yet found a church listed for Thomastown. On the 28th of February 1865 John English, Bachelor, Labourer of Bathurst, married Charlotte Eliza Childs, Dressmaker also of Bathurst, Widow. Rev James Matthew Laughton, minister of the Church of Scotland, married them in St Stephen's Manse, Bathurst. There is a story in the family that at the time of their marriage John was not a practising Catholic. Later when the first child was born John wanted her christened in the Catholic Church. At this time Charlotte became a Catholic and they became fervent Catholics thereafter. Charlotte Eliza Childs was born Charlotte Eliza Galpin on the 14th of August 1831, in Dorchester, Dorset, England. Her parents were married on January 1st 1827 and were William Galpin and Hanna Dixon daughter of Thomas Dixon. Her mother’s name is not recorded on the family tree. Charlotte arrived in Australia about 1862. My father, Perce English used say that his grandmother Charlotte had been presented at court. He also had a story that on one occasion in her later life some English ladies visited Yass and asked after her but she did not make herself known to them. There is a book, The Family of Galpin of Staffordshire and Dorset written by George Luck Galpin and published in London at the Chiswick Press in 1926. It has a family tree that has Charlotte on it and claims to trace the Galpins of Stafford and Dorset back to Johannes De Montgalpen of Evereux who came across to England with William the Conqueror in 1066. ‘Galopin’ is a Scots word for galloper or gallop, derived from French, for an errand boy, a page or a kitchen boy so the surname might also be derived from that. One dictionary of English surnames gives only this second derivation and ignores the claim to Norman origin. The book, which I copied from one in the Bodlean Library in Oxford, also has a short chapter on Thomas Dixon Galpin, Charlotte's brother born three years before her. He became a publisher in London under the imprint Cassell, Petter and Galpin & Co. He is listed in the census of 1881 as a publisher, married to Emma and living at Putney Heath, Bristol House. They had eleven children by then (the Galpin book says they had thirteen eventually) and twelve servants. Beside Charlotte and Thomas there were another brother and three sisters survived infancy. Their father was the first chairman of the Wilts and Dorset Bank. Thomas was educated by the Reverend William Barnes 'the Dorset poet' and at the Owenite Settlement at Harmony Hall near Stockbridge. Their father became a White Quaker and for a time the family lived in Ireland. Thomas also attended another school for boys and girls founded by Robert Owen the social reformer. There is no evidence of what education Charlotte had. When Charlotte married John English she had been twice widowed. Her first husband's surname was Jordan and they had a son named Edward Dixon (usually called Dixon) and two daughters Laura and Jessie. Charlotte's second husband was named Childs. There is no record of any children by this second marriage. John and Charlotte had six children Charlotte Amy (called Amy by the family) born 1864, Honora born 1865, John born 1867, Thomas Dixon born 1870, William Simon born 1872, and Hannah Mary born 1878. John English kept a small black notebook in the 1870s and beyond. In it are details of horses and when they foaled, grass seed bought, recipes for mixtures to treat animal complaints, days on which employees on the farm began work, records of money paid etc. He keeps strict accounts of money spent on household and farm goods. On October 16th 1875 he notes that Dixon's mare foaled. In 1878 he notes the brands for the children, 1 for Jessie, 2 for Laura, 3 for Amy, 4 for Nora, 5 for Johnny and 6 for Hannah. On the 22nd November 1879 he spent six shillings and sixpence for Laura's birthday. In 1882 he notes that Dixon commenced work for him on Monday 16th of April for one pound a week. He employs Dixon several times over the years. It is clear from entries that he called Charlotte Lottie. Later when his son Tom had married Mary McInerney and they had their first child she too was called Charlotte, shortened to Lottie. On September 13th, 1879 John notes, ‘My selection inspected by Mr Inspector Page. Improvements valued at 156 pounds and fifteen shillings.’ On August 13th 1883 John Gildea commenced shepherding at the rate of thirty pounds a year. There are records of money given to the Catholic church and of John collecting money from others on behalf of the church, for Easter Dues, for example. Among the papers there is also a list, ‘Funds collected by Mrs English for piano for the “School of Arts” Marengo.’ She collected twenty-eight pounds and sixpence of which ten shillings was then spent on tuning the piano (I imagine it had arrived by horse and wagon and needed tuning). Many of the Murringo names that were still around in the 1950s, O’Dea, O’Connor, Parkman, Lenane, Kearins, Cusack, Crowe, Dwyer, Kennemore, Chew, Harcombe and Garry are on the list. John’s sister Mary remained in Tipperary and seems to have cared for her parents, Simon and Honora. Four letters from her survive from 1878 and 1879, three to John and one to Charlotte. From them, from letters from young John (more below) and from John senior’s notebooks it is clear that Charlotte’s elder children grew up with the English children and were regarded by all as brothers and sisters. It seems too that his brother William was living a wild life in the colonies, and neither Ned nor he was very much into hard work, and that John Brown treated Norry cruelly. From one of her letters and a look at the shipping records it is evident that in 1860 John paid the passage to Australia of Matthew Dwyer aged thirty. Dwyer’s address was also Thomastown. In 1861 two men from Clonoulty, Roger Dwyer and John Coman had their passages paid by John English. Whether it is our John English is not clear. There was another John English, born in Clonoulty about 1803 that died in Boorowa in 1868. His son, also John came to Australia in 1855 and was married in Boorowa in 1868. One of these seems more likely to be paying for folk from Clonoulty. After their marriage at Bathurst John and Charlotte lived for a time at Good Hope near Yass then, for the rest of their lives, they had a selection at Balowra. In The Southern Argus, Goulburn NSW, Thursday May 23, 1878 there is an eighty by six-and-a-half centimeter column headed, ‘Complimentary Dinner To Mr John English’. It is an account of a dinner given at Mr Cummins’ Royal Hotel, Yass by the Yass Freeholders and Free Selectors’ Association to their late honorary treasurer, Mr John English. There were twenty-seven in attendance, all men, and the Yass Oddfellows’ Band, which played appropriate airs throughout the evening. There was much applause both when Mr English spoke and was spoken about. The occasion is John’s leaving Yass to take up land on Balowra. Speakers praise John’s hard work and unselfishness and his keen advocacy of just land laws in NSW. Coincidentally there is a short note in the same paper about the new shrine in honour of the Virgin Mary that the Sisters of Mercy are just erecting in the St Augustine’s Catholic church. This shrine is mentioned in one of John Junior’s letters to his father. Balowra is a few kilometers from the village of Murringo, which is on the southwest slopes of NSW about half way between Young and Boorowa. Irish people from southern Tipperary and Clare settled the area from Young to Boorowa to Yass to Galong in the middle and late nineteenth century. The Irish had been encouraged to go there by the Deputy Surveyor of NSW the former convict James Meehan. One of the best known of the Irish squatters was Ned Ryan a former convict who settled at Galong (his home later became the Redemptorist monastery). There was a gold rush at nearby Lambing Flat on the Burrangong Creek in 1860. The town Lambing Flat that grew up on the goldfields was the site of anti Chinese riots and was the haunt of several bushrangers. To restore its dignity it was later renamed ‘Young’. ‘Murringo’ seems to be the earliest spelling of the village that the Englishes settled near though it was also spelt Marengo (probably confused with Napoleon’s victory -the original European landholding in the area was called ‘Marengo Station’) and in a variety of other ways as well. These days it is ‘Murringo’. ‘Balowra’ is an anglicized version of the Aboriginal ‘Balowrie’, which is an alternate name for a range of hills, also called ‘Dannanbilla’, near the old English’s farm. The whole area was originally the country of the Wuradjuri people before European occupation. It is good undulating country suitable for grain crops and grazing. Murringo was laid out as a village in the 1840s, much earlier than Young, but it did not thrive, though as late as the 1950s it still had two small shops. In 1900 it had Richens’ blacksmith, a police barracks and a local branch of the Labor party. Although a low stone hotel was built it was never used as a hotel. It still has a state school. The Catholic convent school, run by the Sisters of Mercy closed many years ago. There are small Catholic and Anglican churches where services are still held occasionally. The Anglican church, Christ Church, opened in 1866 and Sacred Heart Catholic church in the 1870s. In the Catholic church there are stained glass windows in memory of both John and Charlotte, and of Thomas English their son who farmed ‘Balowra East’ until his death in 1939. Charlotte’s three children with Mr Jordan were Laura, Edward Dixon and Jessie. Laura married a Mr Commerford and had four children, Mary who married Someone Wall, Katie, Eileen who married Someone Lance and Thomas. Dixon did not marry as far as I can tell. Jessie married Someone Simmons and had a daughter Rose who married Harry Madden. Charlotte and John’s children were Amy, Nora, John, Thomas, William and Hannah. Amy married John Norton and had twelve children, Andrew, Thomas, William, Frank, John, Patrick, Charlotte (married McDonald), Nora (married Gordon), Bridget (married Reynolds), Amy (married W. White), Hannah (married Chesser) and Mary (married C.Byrne). Nora married Edward Dunley. She and Edward are buried beside her parents in Murringo cemetery. They had two children, Eric who married Lorna Rule, and Mary who did not marry. John was killed off a horse aged fifteen. There is a story that he and a mate were racing each other when the accident happened. Thomas (9.3.1870 - 6.11.1939) married Mary Josephine McInerney (26.1.1876 - 26.4.1950) and they had Charlotte Mary, John Thomas, Thomas Dixon, Margaret Ella, William Simon, Percival Joseph, Daryl, and James Desmond. Charlotte married Michael (Toohey) Crowe and they had Edna and Marie. This marriage failed and Charlotte lived as Mary Crowe in Sydney with a man called Lonie. They had three boys. Frank is the only one whose name I know. He was an officer in the RAAF navigating Hercules planes with 2 Squadron in Vietnam. Frank was born on the 27 September 1931 and died in 1995. Lottie is buried as Charlotte Mary Crowe in the Catholic portion of Botany cemetery in Sydney. John was always called Jack (though my father usually called him Tiger and we called him Uncle Tiger) and he married Helena Kearins and they had Neville, Zoe, Barry and Lorna. Jack and Lena are buried in the Catholic section of Rookwood cemetery. Thomas married Hilary Byrne and they had one daughter Jeanette who died of a brain tumor just before her twenty-first birthday in 1952. Tom died aged thirty-nine and is also buried in Botany cemetery. At the time of his death he was secretary of the NSW Country Rugby League. Both his and Lottie’s graves are easy to find. The family called Margaret ‘Ella’. She married Bill Wiggins and they had three sons Frank, Max and John. She died in 1990 and her ashes are buried in the family grave at Murringo with her parents. William Simon married Katherine Maisie Hall and they had one son, John. Bill is buried in Rookwood. Perce married Margaret Elizabeth Carmody and they had Graham, Brian and Mary. Perce and Peg are buried in Murringo cemetery. Daryl died in a measles outbreak aged three months. James married Rachel Craker and they settled in Adelaide. They had Michael, Elizabeth, Christopher, Frances and Nicola. James is buried in Adelaide. William married Mary Weeks and they settled in the Bland district of NSW around West Wyalong and Barmedman. They had William who married Ellen Thompson, Thomas, John who did not marry, Percival who married Laura Bodell, and Dorothy who married first M. Edwards then Mark Monogue. Hannah married J. Harcombe. Their older daughters Louise and Mary became Mercy Sisters at North Sydney, John married and his son John became a priest, James and Albert became Marist priests, and Clair married Harry Walters and they had a daughter Mary. The Englishes of Balowra were active members of the Catholic church in Murringo. Charlotte’s father was a Quaker and her brother Thomas married a Quaker, Emma Pare. Whether Charlotte was a Quaker when she met John, indeed if she was ever a Quaker, I do not know nor do I know when she became a Catholic. In 1881 Mrs John English donated ten pounds for work on the Marengo Catholic church and Patrick O’Connor signed the receipt. In April1903 John bought a ticket in the ‘Juventa Raffle’ in aid of the ‘Christian Brothers Novitiate and Training College, Marino, Dublin, Ireland’. Brother J.R.Hughes wrote on the back of the ticket, ‘Remember me kindly to my dear Marengo friends. God bless them all.’ The ticket cost one guinea. There is a piece of paper among John’s things with this written neatly in pencil, ‘Every man is bound to do what he can to elevate his social state and to secure his independence. For this purpose he must spare from his means in order to be independent in his condition. Industry enables men to earn their living. It should also enable them to learn to live. Independence can be established only by the exercise of forethought, prudence, frugality and self-denial. To be just as well as generous men must deny themselves. The essence of generosity is self sacrifice.’ Charlotte died at Balowra on August 12, 1902. A report of her death in the Yass Courier on the 15th says she died of a lingering illness and had been an invalid. It also notes that she was related to Mr William English of Wongiella and Mr John Flanagan. On her death certificate the cause of death is given as ‘Acute Bronchitis’. John died on June 2nd 1906 of a cerebral haemorrhage. Mrs Buttie Patterson, then aged over ninety told me in 1985 that as a small girl she could remember going to Balowra and seeing old John English laid out in his coffin. There was a bowl of salt sitting on his stomach. I don’t know if this custom has some practical use or if it is something from Irish folklore. John and Charlotte are buried together under a tall dark granite monument in Murringo cemetery. Sources This material depends firstly on the death and birth certificate searches done by Margaret English in the early 1980s, and on her memory. She lived in Young almost all her life and often had bits of information and stories that she eventually started linking together. She was a keeper of the stories. Her particular interest was the Carmody and Woodbridge families (her parents and their ancestors). Perce English, her husband knew a lot of the stories too but was more reticent about relating or recording them. About 1958 the Commercial Bank in Young asked Perce English if he was related to the late John English of Marengo. As a result of his positive response the bank gave him an old tin hat box that contained assorted papers of John English’s that had been in a room at the bank since John’s death in 1906. This material included cuttings from old newspapers, notebooks, John and Charlotte’s wedding certificate and the letters from John Junior, John’s sister Mary, and Charlotte’s brother Thomas Dixon Galpin.

On Mary Kearney and James Brown marriage certificate, it is spelled with an “e”. But later certificates aren’t. Bettina E-mail Address(es): bettinathorp@optusnet.com.au Kelly KELLY Michael 1858 21 (Tipp) James/Winifred living in Tipp. Sisters at Moreton Bay Ship = Ascendant. It is possible that the’ Michael Kelly’ named here was my great granduncle as his parents listed above (James and Winifred), if I’m not mistaken are my greatgreat grandfather/mother. I was born outside the town of Borrisokane, County Tipperary in the townsland of ‘Bawnmore’ in 1959. I have never researched my anscestors to any great degree, so, I would love to find any further information in relation to Michael. Here is what I know: Great Great Grandfather: James Kelly Great Grandfather: Laurence Kelly Grandfather: Denis Kelly Father: Laurence Kelly Just to fill you in a little, I have a brother named Michael and had a uncle named Michael, who unfortunately died at a young age (I think he was only 22). He was drowned in a bog hole/ditch while the family was cutting turf near our family home in Bawnmore. He seemingly was artistic– like myself– and used to do some landscape painting. I have an interest in oil painting and I work in graphic design, which is broadly commercial art. The ‘Kellys’ of Bawnmore were a focal point of the townsland in the 1930’s and had their very own hurling team– which was basically 5 or 6 families. My grandfather (Denis Kelly) was team manager and trainer and the team had 5 Kelly brothers. My father was goalkeeper and 4 uncles played outfield. They won the North Tipperary junior hurling championship in 1933 and a plaque commemorates this achievement at Bawnmore today.

Thomas Lowry of Knockanree parish of Boherlahan married Bridget Blake of Knockanree on 5 February 1821. They had Ned, Margaret, Bridget (1831), Mary (1834), Charlotte, Catherine and Thomas (not necessarily in that order). Most were born at Ballatarsne/Betarsna. I haven't been able to verify when and why Bridget and Mary came to Australia in the 1850s. Bridget married Emmanuel Webster on 3 March 1859 in Melbourne. She died 31 July 1918. Mary married Benjamin Selwyn/Selwin 16 November 1859 in Melbourne and died 10 September 1909. Catherine may have come to Australia in 1854 in the Champion of the Seas. In Ireland Ned married Bridget Maher 1858. Margaret married Pat McQuire 1860. Ann married Michael Ryan 1862. Catherine married John Ryan 1861.

In 1870 he bought the Commercial Hotel in Rockhampton for 200 pounds so I am assuming he had money when he arrived in the colony. The same year he married Catherine McDonald who was from Amagh, Ireland. He also opened a drapery store in Rockhampton in Alma Street, and after his death, his daughters ran this store until their deaths in the 1950' and 1960's Bev Johnston bevdon7@bigpond.com PICKETT Emigrated to Victoria Going by my gg grandfathers marriage cert.

Missing from the database entry are the names of his parents. According to a transcript of his marriage, his father was Timothy, also a butcher and his mother was Eliza Campbell.

Supplied by : Sharon McCulloch richshaz@fuzion.com.au xxxxxxxxxxxx ENGLISH John English and Charlotte Eliza Galpin John English was born on the 9th of March 1837 in Tipperary, Ireland. He arrived in Australia on the Palmyra in 1859 aged twenty-two. John Brown of Yass paid for his passage. I think he was the same John Brown who came as a convict on the ship Surrey in 1838 and was the husband of Honora (nee English). In 1849 Brown had applied to have his wife follow him from Thomastown, Golden, Cashel but as the record says, ‘ Wife too poor-declines to go’. I think Honora Brown (nee English) was the sister of Simon English, John’s father. John’s mother was also Honora. In 1837, the year of John’s birth Golden and Thomastown were described like this as “Golden a village and post-town, in the parish of Relickmurry, barony of Clanwilliam, county of Tipperary, and province of Munster, 3 1/2 miles W. from Cashel (to which it has a sub-post-office), and 82 S. from Dublin, on the road from Cashel to Tipperary; containing 114 houses and 648 inhabitants. It is a neat and improving village, situated in what is called "the Golden Vale," and is divided into two parts by the river Suir, over which is a stone bridge, on which King William signed the charter of Cashel; and near it is an old circular stone tower. Here are flour and oatmeal-mills, and a constabulary police station; fairs are held on May 18th, Aug. 26th, Oct. 26th, and Dec. 15th, and petty sessions once a fortnight. The parochial church was erected here in 1808, and a tower was added by aid of a loan of 700 from the late Board of First Fruits, in 1812. There is also a large R.C. chapel. Thomastown, a village, in the parish of Relickmurry, barony of Clanwilliam, county of Tipperary, and province of Munster, 4 1/2 miles from Cashel, on the road to Tipperary, and near the river Suir; the population is returned with the parish. Thomastown House, the splendid castellated mansion of Lady Elizabeth Matthew, sister and heir of the late Earl of Llandaff, is situated in a noble demesne, comprising upwards of 2000 statute acres, and embellished with a profusion of remarkably fine timber, and two large pieces of water, supplied from a distance of several miles: the scenery is of a very pleasing character, the fine range of hills called the Galtees forming the background. On a part of the demesne called the Ross, near the small river Fidachta, is a beautiful cottage, built by the late Earl. A constabulary police force is stationed in the village; and there is a school for children of both sexes, in which are about 100 children, under the patronage of Lady E. Matthew, who allows the master 10 per annum, besides a house and two acres of land. Some remains of the church exist; it is the burial-place of the family of Matthew.” In 1856 Honora Brown aged 43 of Thomastown, the wife of John Brown of Yass arrived on the ship Commodore Perry with her daughter Johanna aged 21 and her son John aged 20. Her parents were John and Anne who by this time were both dead. On the shipping list John English gave his home address in Ireland as Golden IDJ. On the same ship were Mary English aged thirty-six and Bridget English aged thirty-five, also of Golden and also paid for by John Brown of Yass. In the Yass Courier on the 5th of February 1897 there is a death notice, 'English, Mary. Native of Tipperary Ireland died at Yass on 2.2.1897 aged 87 years. Came to the colony in 1859, Aunt of John English of Belowrie near Yass, Mrs James Dwyer of Spring Creek, Yass River, John Brown (I presume this is John Brown senior and Honora Brown’s son), Yass and Mr W English of Bango.' This is the aunt Mary who came with John to Yass and Bridget was her sister. When young John English was going to school in Yass in 1879 I surmise that this is the Mary he was staying with. In 1866 William English aged fifteen and Edmund English aged eighteen of Thomastown, Golden, Cashel arrived in Sydney on the ship Racehorse, paid for by John English of Yass. They gave as their parents Simon and Honora English and their hometown as Thomastown, Golden, Cashel. Thomastown is a townland that is not on most maps but is on the main road between Golden and Kilfeakle, now the N74. The N74 goes from Tipperary town northeast to Cashel then north to Thurles. A townland is a small area of a few farms. It was the smallest administrative area but usually served as a postal address, in this case John English, Thomastown via Golden via Cashel, County Tipperary. Thomastown is in the parish of Golden, which is in the diocese of Cashel and Emly. There was a Blessed Sacrament church built in Golden in 1804. I have not yet found a church listed for Thomastown. On the 28th of February 1865 John English, Bachelor, Labourer of Bathurst, married Charlotte Eliza Childs, Dressmaker also of Bathurst, Widow. Rev James Matthew Laughton, minister of the Church of Scotland, married them in St Stephen's Manse, Bathurst. There is a story in the family that at the time of their marriage John was not a practising Catholic. Later when the first child was born John wanted her christened in the Catholic Church. At this time Charlotte became a Catholic and they became fervent Catholics thereafter. Charlotte Eliza Childs was born Charlotte Eliza Galpin on the 14th of August 1831, in Dorchester, Dorset, England. Her parents were married on January 1st 1827 and were William Galpin and Hanna Dixon daughter of Thomas Dixon. Her mother’s name is not recorded on the family tree. Charlotte arrived in Australia about 1862. My father, Perce English used say that his grandmother Charlotte had been presented at court. He also had a story that on one occasion in her later life some English ladies visited Yass and asked after her but she did not make herself known to them. There is a book, The Family of Galpin of Staffordshire and Dorset written by George Luck Galpin and published in London at the Chiswick Press in 1926. It has a family tree that has Charlotte on it and claims to trace the Galpins of Stafford and Dorset back to Johannes De Montgalpen of Evereux who came across to England with William the Conqueror in 1066. ‘Galopin’ is a Scots word for galloper or gallop, derived from French, for an errand boy, a page or a kitchen boy so the surname might also be derived from that. One dictionary of English surnames gives only this second derivation and ignores the claim to Norman origin. The book, which I copied from one in the Bodlean Library in Oxford, also has a short chapter on Thomas Dixon Galpin, Charlotte's brother born three years before her. He became a publisher in London under the imprint Cassell, Petter and Galpin & Co. He is listed in the census of 1881 as a publisher, married to Emma and living at Putney Heath, Bristol House. They had eleven children by then (the Galpin book says they had thirteen eventually) and twelve servants. Beside Charlotte and Thomas there were another brother and three sisters survived infancy. Their father was the first chairman of the Wilts and Dorset Bank. Thomas was educated by the Reverend William Barnes 'the Dorset poet' and at the Owenite Settlement at Harmony Hall near Stockbridge. Their father became a White Quaker and for a time the family lived in Ireland. Thomas also attended another school for boys and girls founded by Robert Owen the social reformer. There is no evidence of what education Charlotte had. When Charlotte married John English she had been twice widowed. Her first husband's surname was Jordan and they had a son named Edward Dixon (usually called Dixon) and two daughters Laura and Jessie. Charlotte's second husband was named Childs. There is no record of any children by this second marriage. John and Charlotte had six children Charlotte Amy (called Amy by the family) born 1864, Honora born 1865, John born 1867, Thomas Dixon born 1870, William Simon born 1872, and Hannah Mary born 1878. John English kept a small black notebook in the 1870s and beyond. In it are details of horses and when they foaled, grass seed bought, recipes for mixtures to treat animal complaints, days on which employees on the farm began work, records of money paid etc. He keeps strict accounts of money spent on household and farm goods. On October 16th 1875 he notes that Dixon's mare foaled. In 1878 he notes the brands for the children, 1 for Jessie, 2 for Laura, 3 for Amy, 4 for Nora, 5 for Johnny and 6 for Hannah. On the 22nd November 1879 he spent six shillings and sixpence for Laura's birthday. In 1882 he notes that Dixon commenced work for him on Monday 16th of April for one pound a week. He employs Dixon several times over the years. It is clear from entries that he called Charlotte Lottie. Later when his son Tom had married Mary McInerney and they had their first child she too was called Charlotte, shortened to Lottie. On September 13th, 1879 John notes, ‘My selection inspected by Mr Inspector Page. Improvements valued at 156 pounds and fifteen shillings.’ On August 13th 1883 John Gildea commenced shepherding at the rate of thirty pounds a year. There are records of money given to the Catholic church and of John collecting money from others on behalf of the church, for Easter Dues, for example. Among the papers there is also a list, ‘Funds collected by Mrs English for piano for the “School of Arts” Marengo.’ She collected twenty-eight pounds and sixpence of which ten shillings was then spent on tuning the piano (I imagine it had arrived by horse and wagon and needed tuning). Many of the Murringo names that were still around in the 1950s, O’Dea, O’Connor, Parkman, Lenane, Kearins, Cusack, Crowe, Dwyer, Kennemore, Chew, Harcombe and Garry are on the list. John’s sister Mary remained in Tipperary and seems to have cared for her parents, Simon and Honora. Four letters from her survive from 1878 and 1879, three to John and one to Charlotte. From them, from letters from young John (more below) and from John senior’s notebooks it is clear that Charlotte’s elder children grew up with the English children and were regarded by all as brothers and sisters. It seems too that his brother William was living a wild life in the colonies, and neither Ned nor he was very much into hard work, and that John Brown treated Norry cruelly. From one of her letters and a look at the shipping records it is evident that in 1860 John paid the passage to Australia of Matthew Dwyer aged thirty. Dwyer’s address was also Thomastown. In 1861 two men from Clonoulty, Roger Dwyer and John Coman had their passages paid by John English. Whether it is our John English is not clear. There was another John English, born in Clonoulty about 1803 that died in Boorowa in 1868. His son, also John came to Australia in 1855 and was married in Boorowa in 1868. One of these seems more likely to be paying for folk from Clonoulty. After their marriage at Bathurst John and Charlotte lived for a time at Good Hope near Yass then, for the rest of their lives, they had a selection at Balowra. In The Southern Argus, Goulburn NSW, Thursday May 23, 1878 there is an eighty by six-and-a-half centimeter column headed, ‘Complimentary Dinner To Mr John English’. It is an account of a dinner given at Mr Cummins’ Royal Hotel, Yass by the Yass Freeholders and Free Selectors’ Association to their late honorary treasurer, Mr John English. There were twenty-seven in attendance, all men, and the Yass Oddfellows’ Band, which played appropriate airs throughout the evening. There was much applause both when Mr English spoke and was spoken about. The occasion is John’s leaving Yass to take up land on Balowra. Speakers praise John’s hard work and unselfishness and his keen advocacy of just land laws in NSW. Coincidentally there is a short note in the same paper about the new shrine in honour of the Virgin Mary that the Sisters of Mercy are just erecting in the St Augustine’s Catholic church. This shrine is mentioned in one of John Junior’s letters to his father. Balowra is a few kilometers from the village of Murringo, which is on the southwest slopes of NSW about half way between Young and Boorowa. Irish people from southern Tipperary and Clare settled the area from Young to Boorowa to Yass to Galong in the middle and late nineteenth century. The Irish had been encouraged to go there by the Deputy Surveyor of NSW the former convict James Meehan. One of the best known of the Irish squatters was Ned Ryan a former convict who settled at Galong (his home later became the Redemptorist monastery). There was a gold rush at nearby Lambing Flat on the Burrangong Creek in 1860. The town Lambing Flat that grew up on the goldfields was the site of anti Chinese riots and was the haunt of several bushrangers. To restore its dignity it was later renamed ‘Young’. ‘Murringo’ seems to be the earliest spelling of the village that the Englishes settled near though it was also spelt Marengo (probably confused with Napoleon’s victory -the original European landholding in the area was called ‘Marengo Station’) and in a variety of other ways as well. These days it is ‘Murringo’. ‘Balowra’ is an anglicized version of the Aboriginal ‘Balowrie’, which is an alternate name for a range of hills, also called ‘Dannanbilla’, near the old English’s farm. The whole area was originally the country of the Wuradjuri people before European occupation. It is good undulating country suitable for grain crops and grazing. Murringo was laid out as a village in the 1840s, much earlier than Young, but it did not thrive, though as late as the 1950s it still had two small shops. In 1900 it had Richens’ blacksmith, a police barracks and a local branch of the Labor party. Although a low stone hotel was built it was never used as a hotel. It still has a state school. The Catholic convent school, run by the Sisters of Mercy closed many years ago. There are small Catholic and Anglican churches where services are still held occasionally. The Anglican church, Christ Church, opened in 1866 and Sacred Heart Catholic church in the 1870s. In the Catholic church there are stained glass windows in memory of both John and Charlotte, and of Thomas English their son who farmed ‘Balowra East’ until his death in 1939. Charlotte’s three children with Mr Jordan were Laura, Edward Dixon and Jessie. Laura married a Mr Commerford and had four children, Mary who married Someone Wall, Katie, Eileen who married Someone Lance and Thomas. Dixon did not marry as far as I can tell. Jessie married Someone Simmons and had a daughter Rose who married Harry Madden. Charlotte and John’s children were Amy, Nora, John, Thomas, William and Hannah. Amy married John Norton and had twelve children, Andrew, Thomas, William, Frank, John, Patrick, Charlotte (married McDonald), Nora (married Gordon), Bridget (married Reynolds), Amy (married W. White), Hannah (married Chesser) and Mary (married C.Byrne). Nora married Edward Dunley. She and Edward are buried beside her parents in Murringo cemetery. They had two children, Eric who married Lorna Rule, and Mary who did not marry. John was killed off a horse aged fifteen. There is a story that he and a mate were racing each other when the accident happened. Thomas (9.3.1870 - 6.11.1939) married Mary Josephine McInerney (26.1.1876 - 26.4.1950) and they had Charlotte Mary, John Thomas, Thomas Dixon, Margaret Ella, William Simon, Percival Joseph, Daryl, and James Desmond. Charlotte married Michael (Toohey) Crowe and they had Edna and Marie. This marriage failed and Charlotte lived as Mary Crowe in Sydney with a man called Lonie. They had three boys. Frank is the only one whose name I know. He was an officer in the RAAF navigating Hercules planes with 2 Squadron in Vietnam. Frank was born on the 27 September 1931 and died in 1995. Lottie is buried as Charlotte Mary Crowe in the Catholic portion of Botany cemetery in Sydney. John was always called Jack (though my father usually called him Tiger and we called him Uncle Tiger) and he married Helena Kearins and they had Neville, Zoe, Barry and Lorna. Jack and Lena are buried in the Catholic section of Rookwood cemetery. Thomas married Hilary Byrne and they had one daughter Jeanette who died of a brain tumor just before her twenty-first birthday in 1952. Tom died aged thirty-nine and is also buried in Botany cemetery. At the time of his death he was secretary of the NSW Country Rugby League. Both his and Lottie’s graves are easy to find. The family called Margaret ‘Ella’. She married Bill Wiggins and they had three sons Frank, Max and John. She died in 1990 and her ashes are buried in the family grave at Murringo with her parents. William Simon married Katherine Maisie Hall and they had one son, John. Bill is buried in Rookwood. Perce married Margaret Elizabeth Carmody and they had Graham, Brian and Mary. Perce and Peg are buried in Murringo cemetery. Daryl died in a measles outbreak aged three months. James married Rachel Craker and they settled in Adelaide. They had Michael, Elizabeth, Christopher, Frances and Nicola. James is buried in Adelaide. William married Mary Weeks and they settled in the Bland district of NSW around West Wyalong and Barmedman. They had William who married Ellen Thompson, Thomas, John who did not marry, Percival who married Laura Bodell, and Dorothy who married first M. Edwards then Mark Monogue. Hannah married J. Harcombe. Their older daughters Louise and Mary became Mercy Sisters at North Sydney, John married and his son John became a priest, James and Albert became Marist priests, and Clair married Harry Walters and they had a daughter Mary. The Englishes of Balowra were active members of the Catholic church in Murringo. Charlotte’s father was a Quaker and her brother Thomas married a Quaker, Emma Pare. Whether Charlotte was a Quaker when she met John, indeed if she was ever a Quaker, I do not know nor do I know when she became a Catholic. In 1881 Mrs John English donated ten pounds for work on the Marengo Catholic church and Patrick O’Connor signed the receipt. In April1903 John bought a ticket in the ‘Juventa Raffle’ in aid of the ‘Christian Brothers Novitiate and Training College, Marino, Dublin, Ireland’. Brother J.R.Hughes wrote on the back of the ticket, ‘Remember me kindly to my dear Marengo friends. God bless them all.’ The ticket cost one guinea. There is a piece of paper among John’s things with this written neatly in pencil, ‘Every man is bound to do what he can to elevate his social state and to secure his independence. For this purpose he must spare from his means in order to be independent in his condition. Industry enables men to earn their living. It should also enable them to learn to live. Independence can be established only by the exercise of forethought, prudence, frugality and self-denial. To be just as well as generous men must deny themselves. The essence of generosity is self sacrifice.’ Charlotte died at Balowra on August 12, 1902. A report of her death in the Yass Courier on the 15th says she died of a lingering illness and had been an invalid. It also notes that she was related to Mr William English of Wongiella and Mr John Flanagan. On her death certificate the cause of death is given as ‘Acute Bronchitis’. John died on June 2nd 1906 of a cerebral haemorrhage. Mrs Buttie Patterson, then aged over ninety told me in 1985 that as a small girl she could remember going to Balowra and seeing old John English laid out in his coffin. There was a bowl of salt sitting on his stomach. I don’t know if this custom has some practical use or if it is something from Irish folklore. John and Charlotte are buried together under a tall dark granite monument in Murringo cemetery. Sources This material depends firstly on the death and birth certificate searches done by Margaret English in the early 1980s, and on her memory. She lived in Young almost all her life and often had bits of information and stories that she eventually started linking together. She was a keeper of the stories. Her particular interest was the Carmody and Woodbridge families (her parents and their ancestors). Perce English, her husband knew a lot of the stories too but was more reticent about relating or recording them. About 1958 the Commercial Bank in Young asked Perce English if he was related to the late John English of Marengo. As a result of his positive response the bank gave him an old tin hat box that contained assorted papers of John English’s that had been in a room at the bank since John’s death in 1906. This material included cuttings from old newspapers, notebooks, John and Charlotte’s wedding certificate and the letters from John Junior, John’s sister Mary, and Charlotte’s brother Thomas Dixon Galpin. Brian English found the Yass Courier entries about Aunty Mary and Charlotte’s deaths.

Thomas Lowry of Knockanree parish of Boherlahan married Bridget Blake of Knockanree on 5 February 1821. They had Ned, Margaret, Bridget (1831), Mary (1834), Charlotte, Catherine and Thomas (not necessarily in that order). Most were born at Ballatarsne/Betarsna. I haven't been able to verify when and why Bridget and Mary came to Australia in the 1850s. Bridget married Emmanuel Webster on 3 March 1859 in Melbourne. She died 31 July 1918. Mary married Benjamin Selwyn/Selwin 16 November 1859 in Melbourne and died 10 September 1909. Catherine may have come to Australia in 1854 in the Champion of the Seas. In Ireland Ned married Bridget Maher 1858. Margaret married Pat McQuire 1860. Ann married Michael Ryan 1862. Catherine married John Ryan 1861. I have the life stories of Mary and Bridget and their children in Victoria.

In 1870 he bought the Commercial Hotel in Rockhampton for 200 pounds so I am assuming he had money when he arrived in the colony. The same year he married Catherine McDonald who was from Amagh, Ireland. He also opened a drapery store in Rockhampton in Alma Street, and after his death, his daughters ran this store until their deaths in the 1950' and 1960's Bev Johnston bevdon7@bigpond.com Purcell Lawrence Purcell - native of Tipperary - lived at "Drumbane",Woodstock,(near Cowra),NSW -died 3rd July,1913 -President of Waugoola Shire,devoted Catholic -niece = Miss Flynn -came to NSW about 40 years ago -Resided at Rockley and married Miss Quinn,who survives him -about 1877 bought land close to town of Woodstock,then opened a small store on his farm. -Three sons survive him - James ,Andrew & Patrick -Only daughter Josie died not long before. ** From the "Cowra free press",July 5th,1913.

We're happy to share information with others who have an interest in the same branch of that family. Some of our research may also be useful to those with an interest in the genealogy of the following families, who have been linked by marriage to our SALTERs, viz. In Ireland: GAYNOR; WILSON; KEPPEL In Australia: STONEY; WILLIS; FLEMING; BYRNE; GIFFORD David and Jennifer: davidcanb@bigpond.com Scally You have Michael Scally on the Almost Tipperary list for 1860. I have found a Michael Scally who immigrated in 1861 on the Queen Bee. Another group of Scallys came on the ship, but he is not listed as one of the family, however I think he may be. In the 1872 Greville’s P.O. directory, he is listed as a farmer with Patrick Scally who was on the ship. I have not found a marriage for him. The other group of Scallys were from Roscommon. Sharon Howell-Sawyer E-mail Address(es): sawyerfamily@cox.net SHANAHAN My info relates to one of my ancestors, Timothy Shanahan, 24, who arrived in 1865 aboard the "Star of Brunswick" whose passage was paid for by James Shanahan. Missing from the database entry are the names of his parents. According to a transcript of his marriage, his father was Timothy, also a butcher and his mother was Eliza Campbell. I assume both parents were alive at the time of his emigration because there's nothing in the transcript to indicate otherwise.
